Captainsim C130?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

40 USD includes a full cockpit which looks pretty good.

This looks comparable to Carenado level product - not a bad thing if you're looking to buzz the skies with a classic C130.

edit: I don't see anything about sounds... so they're probably using king air sounds which wouldn't be a good fit.

Finally. Perhaps P3D level? Can live with that. I want to fly circles at EHEH.

The screenshots don't look half bad.

Looks good to me. Feels like this will turn out to have been an expensive few days for me!

Visually looking good, It will be interesting to see what the flight modelling is like, and what works in the cockpit.

I think 'replica' is not a correct word for their products, but visually looks good as always

That’s a pretty good looking VC I must admit.

I’ll be interested to find out how it flies, sounds and if free repaints are available.

As far as I can remember from my FSX/P3D days, that VC is not just a port over. Good detail and textures.

If Captain Sim turns their company around they have SO MUCH potential. I Loved their products in the early sim days, had basically all of them! This cockpit looks incredible and seems to me they are heading back in the right direction. Yes it will be a while to gain respect and customers again but this might be the start!

Looks great! I like that they've built a "classic" version and not a -J Super Hercules, although that would have been cool too.

My father flew these when I was a kid, so I have a lot of nostalgia looking at that cockpit. 

I hope they got the sounds right, the reverse thrust sound on these could make the hairs on your arms stand up.

Nothing about the flight model in the description is worrying, however it does look good.

I purchased the version for FS9 and FSX years ago, and never really flew it because of the bad flight dynamics and terrible sounds and 2D panel. They lost me years ago as a customer because of their way of selling you parts of a system instead of a complete aircraft. Their eye candy of the C130 was great but that's about all. they have to do a much better job with their C130 before I bite again.

Looking good ( was in the old FSX days ) is this a "working" Cockpit anyone knows ?

This would be a NEW way of Captain Sim then, like back to the old FSX days..

That would be great !

Another dev else is working on the -J right now.

Sadly I'm blanking on the dev name
